Taylor also said he wouldn't rule out a return to the iconic rock group.
The 62-year-old had been diagnosed in 2018 and was previously classified as needing “palliative, end-of-life care.”
He will be releasing his first solo album in decades, Man’s a Wolf to Man, next month. Previous solo projects include Thunder in 1987 and Dangerous in 1990.
Taylor was unable to join the rest of Duran Duran during their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction last year.
He spoke to a doctor who told him of a treatment that was designed to only see cancer cells.
Taylor told the London Times that he had been treated with the new intervention, which sees radioactive chemicals given intravenously.
According the same publication, he is “radioactive for several days” and is not able to sleep in the same room as other people.
His Duran Duran bandmates read aloud a letter from their guitarist at the Hall of Fame ceremony last year, in which he told them of his diagnosis.
"It takes someone with a very special quality from their heart to do that and not drop a word. People don't realise he's actually quite a classy guy," Taylor said of Simon Le Bon, who read the message.
Taylor has also ruled out a return to the iconic rock group.
“No, I’m not going to rejoin the band… I would not say no to the opportunity, particularly for the fans, but as I keep reminding people, you have to be asked."
The group released their 15th studio album, Future Past, in 2021 and are currently touring North America alongside Nile Rodgers and Chic and Bastille.
